Newnan Utilities and the Hunter Scarbrough Foundation will sponsor the second annual Glow Golf Extravaganza today at the Newnan High School lower lacrosse field from 6:30 -10 p.m. in his memory.

Scarbrough was an eighth grader at Madras Middle when he passed away on Nov. 20, 2016, at 14.

Food Trucks, a live band and 18-holes of mini golf and games will part of the activities. Tickets are $10 per person with children under five free.

Tickets may be purchased at Redneck Gourmet, Fraziers at Madras or at the Newnan Utilities Main Office and Wahoo.

The Hunter Scarbrough Foundation created by Hunter’s family to honor his life and memory by investing in the futures of students who display the characteristics and values that the former  Newnan High School student displayed including Faith, Leadership, Academic Perseverance, and Community Service.

The foundation was established by his parents Todd and Jodi, sister Hannah and uncle Brett Scarbrough which will provide a one-time scholarship to a senior student at Newnan, East Coweta and Northgate to help pay for their college expenses.

Several athletes and coaches from all the local high schools turned out for the event last year with $24,000 being raised.

“I can’t properly say how touched I am to see so many people attend this event,” Todd Scarbrough said last year.  “This community has been overwhelming in their support of our family. We wanted this event to be about kids and these were things Hunter enjoyed.”

Hunter was a baseball, football and basketball player. His sister Hannah was a former softball player who now plays for the University of West Georgia.
